Knee injuries and chronic knee pain can significantly affect your quality of life, preventing you from walking, sitting, or even standing comfortably. We offer personalized PRP knee injections to stimulate natural cellular regeneration and restore optimal mobility.
Stimulate Natural Regeneration To Heal Your Knees
Knee injuries are unfortunately quite common, especially among athletes who put a lot of stress on their joints. However, there is hope for those suffering from knee injuries, chronic knee pain, or degenerative conditions that affect the knee joints, like osteoarthritis. A promising new treatment option called platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy can regenerate damaged tissues and promote healing, helping you lead a pain-free life without relying on opioids.
What Do PRP Knee Injections Treat?
- Knee osteoarthritis
- Rotator cuff tears
- Joint pain
- Joint inflammation
- Knee injuries
- Patellar tendonitis
- Chronic degenerative joint disease
What is PRP?
PRP, or platelet-rich plasma, is a concentration of platelets and growth factors that can stimulate your body’s natural healing process. The human blood contains numerous components, including red blood cells, white blood cells, and platelets.
The platelets contain a high concentration of growth factors, which are responsible for most of your body’s healing properties, such as cellular regeneration and blood clot formation. PRP therapy allows us to catalyze your body’s innate healing processes to heal injuries and joint pain.
How Do PRP Knee Injections Work?
PRP knee injections are a type of regenerative medicine that involves taking a sample of the patient’s blood and then separating out the platelets. These platelets are then injected into the knee joint, where they release growth factors that stimulate the healing process.
When injected into the knee, growth factors stimulate the regeneration of cartilage and other tissues. This can help to relieve pain, improve function, and delay or avoid the need for joint replacement surgery.
Benefits Of PRP Knee Injections:
- Minimally invasive treatment — no incisions or surgeries
- Delay or negate the need for knee surgeries
- Reduce inflammation and alleviate pain
- Slow down the progress of osteoarthritis
- Stimulate cellular and tissue regeneration
- Autologous treatment based on components derived from your body
- Completely safe treatment with no risk of infections
- No harsh side effects or complications
- Resume daily activities immediately — no downtime
How Are PRP Knee Injections Administered?
PRP is derived from the patient’s own blood, so it is an autologous procedure. A small amount of blood is drawn from the patient and then placed in a centrifuge. This machine spins the blood at a high speed, which separates the different blood components. The platelet-rich plasma is then collected and injected into the affected area on the knee joints. Our medical providers tailor the treatment according to your specific symptoms and condition to ensure optimal results.
What Are The Side Effects Of PRP Knee Injections?
The most common side effects of PRP knee injections are bruising and swelling at the injection site. These are usually mild and go away within a few days. Since PRP injections are completely autologous and drawn from your body, the risk of infections or rejection are negligible.
When Will I Experience Pain Relief?
The results of this treatment can vary from person to person, but most people will start to see results within a few weeks of their first injection. For some people, the results of PRP knee injections can be long-lasting. However, this treatment is not a cure for knee pain, and some people may need to have repeat injections over time.
